The most recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice raised more concerns than excitement for fans. What many feared, and that trailer looked to confirm, is that BvS could put too much focus on setting up the DC extended universe, which would take away from the story of Batman vs. Superman. The truth is, and has always been, that a Batman/Superman face-off will be just one part of this big event film. We knew that ever since the film’s title ‘Dawn of Justice’ was first revealed, and the most recent trailer further confirmed it.
I’m very curious to see if Zack Snyder will be able to setup and introduce the Justice League without taking too much away from the story. It was recently revealed (via. a German theater company) the run time for Batman v Superman will be 2 hours and 31 minutes. A run time like that would allow for everything we’ve seen in the trailers so far to be explored, if done right. It also allows Snyder time to carefully place easter eggs throughout the film that could foreshadow future films and story lines, and possibly include cameos of previously confirmed Justice League members such as Aquaman (Jason Mamoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller). Well according to a new rumor, Snyder has found a way to lead Batman v Superman into the Justice League: Part One film using an old technique.
According to Heroic Hollywood, the end title credits for Batman v Superman will consist of a montage sequence reminiscent of what Snyder did with the opening credits on Watchmen. For those who aren’t familiar with the sequence, I placed a video below of the opening credits. Its a highly effective 5 minute credit sequence which set the tone of Watchmen and gave backstory of a world with superheroes set to Bob Dylan’s classic “The times they are a-changin“.
I have a great feeling about this move from Snyder, because I thought it worked brilliantly in Watchmen. If this end credit sequence actually happens, then we can expect to see many of the Justice League members. I’m curious which song Snyder would use for the end credits sequence or if it’ll be a Hans Zimmer exclusive.
What do you think of this move from Zack Snyder?
